Sweet Gathering - At Proserpine Mill

The Proserpine Sugar Mill saw an influx of retired and former employees last week, with the annual Mill Reunion organised and hosted at the Mill Social Club.

Seeing over 30 former employees gather at the club, the luncheon acts as a reconnection for many of the attendees, a celebration of years’ past, an excuse to come together and share stories.
